Author Topic: Need Index for the Three Tales from the Asylum Collections  (Read 1002 times)

« on: September 09, 2014, 11:15:50 pm »

Can anyone tell me the titles of the stories included in the three Tales from the Asylum collections? I don't need the authors, as I list the anthologies by their editor(s), but I do need them in the order they appear in from each anthology.

Thanks!

Why don't you put the entire question in the title so that people that know the answer will bother to read it and reply?

Apparently because I can't make enough of the question show up in the subject line...

Give me some time, and I'll try to think up another way to do this.

I have the second volume. I can photograph the contents page for you tomorrow if no-one else provides a list before then?

May sound like a stupid question but ...
Have you asked Arkwright?

Prologue
The sea of Tranquility - a lunar story
Bloodlust - a "real" vampire story
The Observatory - a cosmic journey
Voices of the past - An antiquarian/ghost story
Storm watch - a story of the sea
The Ghostship - a story inspired by the real Whitby ghost ship
Blood Hunt - a vampire killer story
The toothless jaw - a ghost story
Fish stones - a sea monster story.
Epilogue.

@RJBowman:  Excellent suggestion! I'll try that in a bit.

@Flightless Phoenix:  Yes, please! Thank you!

@CPT_J_Percell:  Yeah, why don't you PM on that first one...For the second part, which of the three volumes is this from? Also, are the descriptors part of the title, or your own addenda?

Again, thank you all!

2 Beyond the Asylum

Blood Red’ by Arkwright
He who will never be named
The thing that should never have lived
The return of the King
A machine for all seasons
Lost for words
The ascent of man
To Become a gentleman
Dark Fusin
No man is an island
Their other kingdom

3 Lost souls of the Asylum

A life worth living - a search for perfection ends in disaster.
The collector - collecting can be an obsession. It can aslo be dangerous.
One piece at a time - one man's attempt at self improvemenet turns to self destruction.
The Royston Caves - a medieval curiosity has a darker side.
The jungle of the mind - playing games with peoples minds can lead to death.
Where there is smoke - an anarchist plot of truly diabloical proportions.
The Box - an old man has a box for sale, how far will people go to buy it and how much will they pay.
When the moon is dark - the antithesis of a warewolf story (a good one for someone with knowledge of other cultures).
The death of Dr Grace - Dr Grace is sought by those dire need, but is the treatment all it seems?
Fire and Ice - a never ending struggle is fought in the heart and soul of a young man/woman.
The thickness of a shadow - a scientist finds himslef in an unfamiliar world.
The eye of the believer - a story of practical magic.

4 Ghosts of the Asylum

Leave no trace.
The bridge of time
My last breath
Some things are best forgotten
The lonely hunter
Before the sun rises
Sleep, my friend...
Deathly silence
Signs and portents
Ships in the night

Ahoy there,

A brief point of order, one of the short stories from 'Beyond the Asylum' was omitted from the very full list provided. 'More honoured in the breach' I forget where it came in the order, I can check when I get home. I only know because it was mine.  Cheesy

Many thanks

Cheers for pointing that out, I only did a brief scan of the forums looking fro the big listings!

My versions (not sure if there's been a second edition which re-ordered the lists) read as follows:

Quote
Tales from the Asylum

Prologue
The Stargazer
Voices from the past
Bloodlust
Blood Hunt
The Hollow Man
Sea of Tranquility
The Toothless Jaw
Ghost Ship
The Call of the Deep
Ring of Silence
Stormwatch
Epilogue

Quote
Beyond the Asylum

Somewhere in the mists of time...

Part 1

Prologue
The Perfect Lady
A Machine for all Seasons
Their Other Kingdom
A Child of Misfortune
To Become a Gentleman
A Letter to My Father
Epilogue

Part 2

Prologue
Step 31 + 32 + 33
Lost for Words
For Queen and Country
The Ascent of Man
More Honoured in the Breach
Shipwreck
Epilogue

The end of days...

The listings up there seem to be the original call for submissions rather than the published version, since Ghosts should include 'Midway Upon the Journey' and 'Letters from the Dead' IIRC. Other titles I notice missing include 'The Lonely Hunter' and 'Black Knight Blues' for what that's worth.

Thank you, everyone!

I've been off-forum for a few months, so I'll be making the listed corrections/additions in a week or so. I'll run the updated version by everyone here, first, so hopefully one of you can spot-check me to make sure I don't screw something else up while trying to fix the items mentioned.
